I just can't help thinking that we are all being conned and misled with fake specs and a grossly exaggerated lifespan of LED bulbs and lighting. Just like the lies about the previous lot of rubbish low energy fluorescent type replacement bulbs which were supposed to last 1000's of hours or 10 years+ etc. Oh yes, and to add to this. When the 1st old LCD screen devices - TV's, Laptops which had CCFL lamps in etc were replaced and sold with LED screens, that was supposed to be the end of that issue. Not a bit of it. Thousands of TV's end up in landfill ( or shipped off to Nigeria ) every year because the LED backlights in the screens have failed after only a fairly short time.

I bought 16 of the golf ball version just before Xmas........they pretty much all failed, and of the 8 replacements .only 5 remain working.
Really annoyed as I bought them to help do my environmental bit and they’ve just ended up as more landfill.

I think the problem is there's a huge disparity between good quality LEDs and everything else. They make these cheap bulbs out of cheap rubbish that burns out as they try to get decent lumens and either runs hot or there isn't sufficient cooling.
Decent LED lighting is great but expensive.......cheap LED lighting tends to be rubbish destined for landfill.
Some great prices there on dimmable bulbs.Have some heat.

I went 100% LED 7 years ago and have never had to replace a bulb since. That's over 50 bulbs with most being used daily.

What make(s)?

I got what I thought were the best GU10 at the time, Lumilife from Ledhut but these are now failing after about two years.

Though there's a day/night bulb in my front garden that's been in probably 8 years!

You hit the nail more or less straight on the head. If there isn't one already, there ought to be some kind of manufacture/performance standard to which LED lights should meet. Anything else shouldn't be allowed on the market.
Damn it I just bought a load from screwfix!
Any suggestions for dimmable cool white LED bulbs? As mentioned in earlier posts, I have bought some cheap ones in the past and they don't last even a year.
It's annoying as they all give these wonderful longlife guarentees, but require you to keep the box (as that details the guarentee) and the receipt - who on earth keeps a lightbulb box and receipt for 10 years?

Screwfix have a 3 year warranty. I wouldn't buy LEDs with less than that, if the manufacturer won't put their money where their mouth is then I'm not buying them just to become e-waste in a landfill after a couple of years.

...which is precisely why they offer those pointless guarantees, as they know they will never have to honour them. All it gives the punter is a false sense of security.

OP, can you give us VAT-inclusive prices please? They are shown in the listing. And the first one, at least, says "no longer stocked".
Shame that people are having issues with CPC LED bulbs. I bought LED floodlights from them because, firstly, they actually have the advertised power, and secondly, because they are likely to last more than 5 minutes.

A guarantee/warranty from a bricks and mortar outlet is worth something. When it's mail order and they expect you to return it at your own cost, and then they declare it not faulty and expect you to pay to get it back again, not so much...
Poundland LED lamps can be a good idea. Not only are they easier to return if they fail, but if you're handy with a soldering iron, some of them can be de-rated to make them last much longer. If you're paying for your time, that's no so good!

CPC don't have standards. I bought some plug strips from them with advertised 2.1A USB charging ports and the two ports had a combined output of 1A. This was on 5 strips, I returned all of them, nobody at CPC seemed to understand why it was a problem.

Mainly Phillips but a variety of others. They weren't cheap, averaging just under £10 each.
Ordered. Hot

That's a shame, even by the watered-down dishonesty we consider to be "standards" nowadays. But if you order an LED lamp from them, it's likely to have the power stated. Good luck with that on eBay etc!

Edit: did you confirm that they really couldn't provide 2.1A - it wasn't just a signalling problem to the connected devices? (Not that that makes a difference practically!)

I bought 2 fans from here and both sounded like air force one jets after a couple of months. Not what you need trying to sleep lol. I cancelled my account as most stuff was cheap Chinese rubbish.

I thought the same at first so I tried a wide range of devices and cables and even went as far as to buy a USB current/voltage meter to be sure. I was able to easily attain 2A with other chargers and combinations of the devices and cables I had, but there was no combination of accessories that allowed me to attain even a decent charging speed, let alone the advertised rating.

Yeah, and I believe that all you need to get devices to draw 1 amp is to connect the data pins together. YMMV with Apple, of course.
